paul ryan said is very interesting because we had an editorial on monday from glenn hubbard, mitt romney's economic adviser, essentially saying that yes, we recognize we need to talk about tax increases for the rich. i mean, he actually stressed that that should be the starting point of a discussion. he didn't say, glenn hubbard, that he increases -- he wants to see increases in tax rates. he was looking at closing loopholes, things like that, but he was willing to put that on the table. the problem, though, is that even if advisers like glenn hubbard are saying that, what we're seeing is people like paul ryan still very much signaling strong opposition to that idea. >> what's your head count in the senate, the number of republicans -- >> in the senate? >> yeah. >> i think the senate will pass whatever the leaders agree to. i think like with most of these things now, they'll have to go to the house floor without knowing -- without the votes. the question is who can you lose and still pass it? you'll lose some liberal democrats, but i think you're going to get a base support of dem
that the president is committed to that same thing? absolutely we do. >>> also congressman paul ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >>
's paul ryan on the urban vote. let's listen to paul ryan and his looking at this whole ethnic, or urban vote he calls it. >> we were surprised with the outcome. we knew this was going to be a close race. we thought we had a very good chance of winning it. i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout in especially urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> you know, ashley, they got to get their accusations straight. somebody on -- one of the leaders of the republican party out there in wisconsin said all the votes were fraudulent votes, they were all stolen. and now he's out there, the presidential candidate, saying they were all bought. and now this guy is -- i have to say to paul ryan, he was just surprised they showed up. he hasn't quite figured out the motive yet. >> i think the romney campaign obviously didn't take into account the huge turnout that the president got. that was one of the problems with their polling. >> is that why they're looking for new explanations? >> i mean, i think they're truly struggling to expl
are already digging in their heels. speaker boehner, senator minority leader mitch mcconnell, paul ryan. all of them saying they will fight the president on taxes. all of them saying the president doesn't have a mandate. but president obama has something to say about that. >> i have one mandate. i have a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get into the middle class. that's my mandate. >> this is a clear message. it's what americans voted for a week ago. are you sure you want this fight, republicans? democrat from pennsylvania chuck fatah and ezra klein, msnbc policy analyst. he's writing about the fight over taxes today and the piece is called "the big question: how, not whether, to raise taxes." thank you for joining me tonight. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> congressman, do you think republicans will make a deal or is this 2010 with the tea party all over again? >> well, what the public needs to understand is the income tax system is not fair to them. there is a report done by the congress each year by the joint committee on taxation. sh
and rape is god's will and got $5,000 from paul ryan's pac. that's the problem. that's the problem. it's not just one guy. they have become the raping party. literally. >> sweat like a wloar in church. he was trying to sound like a weird, hyper hippy with the talk about peace, love and friendship. >> sean: mitt romney? >> yeah, exactly. it is a smear movement, basically. i think conservatives have had this wrong for a long time. what they have said, we can ignore these guys because they don't have any ratings, nobody's listening. the truth is that they have really been able to get their message out a lot more than we ever thought and i think election day showed that. so to ignore these people is a major, major mistake. forget their ratings. pay attention to what they are saying because oftentimes when you hear on the shows ends up on the smear left web site, et cetera. there is no reason to just disregard this and say, they don't have enough people listening. >> sean: let's go back. this was a comment that was made before election day. again, fast eddie here. i will let him speak. shal
should we have picked mitt romney, well you did. should he have picked paul ryan? absolutely, he's a smart political figure and has a lot to taufer party and resonated well with the electorate. so all of that second guessing is typical washington inside crazeness. you need to hunker down and look at your ground game and your organization and your message and mess jers. we need mess jers who look like me. we need mess jers who are hispanic, asian american, women cross section of folks who represent communities all across the country. host: your successor of the republican national committee may seek a second term as chair of the party. what are you hearing? guest: i've heard people say that and that's a decision he will make on his own. and the party will judge whether losing two senate seats and the presidential and not much of a ground game is worthy of a reelection. host: a landslide loss for big money. voters ignored most of the outside ads but the danger of unlimited spending remains and a lot of focus on american cross roads and the money spenlt by carl rove. those people sh
made a difference. [applause] i just spoke with governor romney, and i congratulated him and paul ryan on a hard-fought campaign. [applause] we may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply, and we care so strongly about its future. from george to lenore to their son mitt, the romney family has chosen to give back to america through public service, and that is a legacy that we honor and applaud tonight. [applause] in the weeks ahead, i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. [applause] i want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years, america's happy warrior -- [applause] the best vice president anybody could ever hope for -- joe biden. [applause] and i wouldn't be the man i am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. [applause] let me say this publicly -- michelle, i have never loved you more. i have never been prouder to watch the rest of america fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady. [applause] sasha and malia, before o
the basic structure of medicare as paul -- and medicaid as paul ryan does. it think you can find great, great savings by working the inefficiencies. anyone who's gone through it knows the inefficiencies in the system. they're just incredible. >> or -- excuse me, i apologize. john? is. >> speaker boehner yesterday talked about not increasing tax rates on small businesses, so if that framework could be accomplished, what kind of revenues could be raised within that framework from your point of view, and could you consider the limit on the value of deductions that the president's had in his budget -- >> okay. first, in terms of small businesses how do you define a small business, and that's, again, one of the sort of slippery slopes a little bit. do you define a multibillion dollar entertainment company, sports team or hedge fund as a small business because their structure happens to be a business structure? and so i think there's, i think everyone agrees that what we really mean when we say small business, what the typical voter envisions when we mean small business is the local dry clea
